Description
Todd English, an award-winning chef, famous restaurateur and PBS television personality, shares his trademark flavor formulas for using readily available ingredients and translating them into simple, tantalizing dishes at home. In this innovative yet approachable cookbook, Todd shares his trade secrets on how to create fresh flavor combinations. Each combination is presented in a visual equation that allows for an easy, at-a-glance way of seeing what makes a recipe taste outstanding. At the same time, Cooking in Everyday English is a clear, uncomplicated approach to cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients at home.
Each of the book's 150 recipes is a new flavor discovery, illustrated with luscious four-color photography. The food covers the gamut from appetizers to soups and salads, vegetables, starch, birds and eggs, meat, fish and shellfish, kids and family dinners, and desserts.
A visually stunning cookbook, Cooking in Everyday English features dynamic, visual flavor equations, recipe grocery lists, practical food techniques illustrated with step-by-step photography, and Todd's advice on how to be a flavorful cook with everyday food store ingredients. Having this book in the kitchen is like having a "cook whisperer" sharing tips and sage advice as you cook an evening meal. Like any good teacher, Todd walks readers through each recipe, step-by-step, explaining how each part contributes to the tastiest results.
Cooking in Everyday English is a fresh, contemporary cook's companion. And it delivers a visually inspiring treat on every page.
